Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, or the “Photofacial”, is a medical aesthetics treatment that renews your skin’s look, and improves color, texture, and tone. This procedure is safe, quick, and non-invasive. During an IPL Photofacial treatment, we treat your skin with light that penetrates the dermis, the second layer of your skin. The pigmented cells or hair follicles will absorb the light energy, convert it to heat, and destroy the pigment. It’s an effective way to treat age spots, freckles, broken blood vessels, and more. It encourages the skin to shed and renew its outer layer, gradually eliminating scar tissue.
WHAT IS AN IPL PHOTOFACIAL?
An IPL Photofacial, also known as Intense Pulsed Light Facial, is a non-invasive way to renew your skin’s look and improve color, texture, and tone. During a PhotoFacial session, we will treat your skin with light that penetrates to the second layer of skin, the dermis, which then encourages collagen and blood vessels to constrict. The pigmented cells or hair follicles will absorb the light energy, convert it to heat, and destroy the pigment. It’s an effective way to treat age spots, freckles, broken blood vessels, and more.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING AN IPL PHOTOFACIAL?
During your IPL PhotoFacial treatment, your skin will first be cleaned and prepared with a cooling gel. You’ll also be asked to wear dark glasses (certified laser-safe) during the treatment to protect your eyes. The IPL device will be moved across your skin as the technician triggers the pulsed light. The handpiece has a cooling tip, which feels like an ice cube on your skin to chill the treatment area before the device is fired. The bright flash of light creates a snapping sensation that is adjustable to your comfort level. Expect to feel a bit warm for the next couple of hours and stay out of direct sunlight. Sunblock will be applied to sun-exposed areas if needed. In the days afterward, the pigment in the treated areas will rise to the top of your skin and naturally slough off.
